A tiny hand-held instrument used for food preparation is known as a kitchen utensil. Cutting food items to size, cooking meals over an open fire or on a stove, baking, grinding, combining, blending, and measuring are all common culinary chores; distinct equipment are designed for each activity. A general-purpose instrument, such as a chef’s knife, may be used to prepare a range of dishes; other kitchen equipment, such as an egg separator or an apple corer, are highly specialized and can only be used in conjunction with the preparation of a certain type of food. When a procedure must be repeated several times or the cook has limited skill or movement, specialist tools are utilized. The amount of tools in a home kitchen varies depending on the time and cooking method.

A culinary utensil is a tool used in the kitchen. Kitchenware, or goods for the kitchen; ovenware and bakeware, or kitchen tools for use inside ovens and baking; cookware, or cooking equipment; and so on.

Eating utensils, which are tools used for eating, are a somewhat overlapping category of tools (c.f. the more general category of tableware). Some tools can be used in the kitchen as well as in the dining room. Cutlery (knives and other cutting instruments) can be used in the kitchen for food preparation as well as as dining utensils. Forks and spoons, for example, are both cooking and dining tools.

Although not strictly denoting a utensil that is specific to the kitchen, other names for various types of kitchen utensils are based on the materials they are made of, again using the “-ware” suffix, rather than their functions: earthenware, utensils made of claysilverware, utensils (both kitchen and dining) made of silver; glassware, utensils (both kitchen and dining) made of glass; Utensils constructed of glass, silver, clay, and other materials that aren’t technically cooking utensils fall into this category.


“Our knowledge of the old culinary tools is quite restricted,” Mrs Beeton said, “but as the skill of living is very much the same in every civilized nation, the instruments for cooking must, in a considerable degree, exhibit a striking similarity to one another.”

Kitchen utensils from previous eras have been examined by archaeologists and historians. Consider the following scenario: According to historical and archaeological sources, Jewish households in the Middle East in the first millennium AD had stone measuring cups, a meyam (a wide-necked vessel for heating water), a kederah (an unlidded pot-bellied cooking pot), an ilpas (a lidded stewpot/casserole pot type of vessel used for stewing and steaming), yorah, and kumkum (pots for heating) (a wine decanter).

The sorts of cooking utensils and who owned them differed from one family to the next. In the 14th century, inventory of cooking equipment were kept in London, and records of property were kept in the coroner’s rolls. Only a handful of these folks had any culinary utensils. In reality, there are just seven convicted offenders who have any. One of them, a murderer from 1339, is documented as having only one cooking utensil: a three-shilling brass pot (one of the most frequent kitchen items reported in the records).

Similarly, in the second half of the nineteenth century in Minnesota, John North is recorded as having made “a real nice rolling pin, and a pudding stick” for his wife; one soldier’s Civil War bayonet was refashioned into a bread knife by a blacksmith; and an immigrant Swedish family was recorded as having brought “solid silver knives, forks, and spoons” with them. A large number of copper and brass utensils were polished until they resembled rows of mirrors.
